    Concept »

    The 26th annual Electronic Entertainment Expo was planned to take place June 9-11, 2020 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California. It was cancelled on March 11, 2020 due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Nintendo skipping E3 2020 too?

    So, the E3 website doesn't actually launch until tomorrow (Thursday, 2/13). But, people figured out where the files are hosted and there's a version of the site that's easily accessible here. Gotta love that ESA security.

    Nothing too interesting to be found there, but there's an exhibitor list, which is definitely a preliminary list as there's only about 20 companies on it. But, the list specifically calls these companies "the major game industry and business partners".

    And Nintendo isn't on it.

    No Caption Provided

    It could just be an unfinished list, but with Sony already out and Xbox doing all their stuff outside of the convention center, I have no idea what West Hall even is anymore if this happens.

    I could easily see Nintendo still doing a Direct and even still doing their Treehouse streams from Redmond. If we lose those all day Treehouse streams, that would be a huge bummer.

    It’s unsurprising, I think, but I’m curious to see what, if anything, E3 pivots to. Also, what the actual fuck, ESA? If you burn your hand on the stove security-wise, maybe don’t jam your hand down on it a second time?
